Eclipse was amazing. It exceeded my expectations, and in my opinion, was better than both Twilight and New Moon combined.
Despite how fast it goes and how rearranged some things are, they adapted it really well. Everything flowed smoothly for both people who had read the books and people who hadn’t. I think everything was dumbed down in a way that will entertain the hardcore fans and educate the newbies.
The fight scenes were epic. So intense and dramatic and perfect for the movie. We got to see a bit more of each Cullen and Quilete this time around. They all have their time to shine on the battleground and I loved seeing their different fighting techniques. (And be on the lookout for an INCREDIBLY ADORABLE scene between Jasper and Alice as they practice fighting. I don’t think I’ve ever ‘awed’ so loud before.)
And holy wow, there was so much kissing! Not just between Edward and Bella either. I felt like I needed to take a cold shower after all of that steaminess. Which reminds me .. the fluff? It’s THICK. But if you’re Team Edward, it’ll make you squeal with happiness.
Overall, I was very, VERY pleased with the outcome of Eclipse. David Slade put his own dark, creepy twist on the story and it ended up being genius. Mixing his darkness with Stephenie Meyer’s deep romance was definitely an experience. If you’re a fan, see it as soon as possible! If you’re on the fence about it, give it a try!
I personally plan on seeing it again and again and again!
